What is a mirrorless digital camera?

A digital camera accepts different lenses to fit in the camera to capture. But there are cameras which do not use a mirror to reflect the image into the viewfinder. These cameras are also called "mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras" (MILC), or "hybrid cameras" and also in fact called "compact system cameras" (CSC). These cameras come with a thinner body than other digital SLR (DSLR) cameras which are available on the market- this is because there is no mechanical mirror in the new camera.
